On a roll
Folded by Veera Valimaki, and I think I have to conclude that it is too short.Stormtracker by Alicia Plummer; plain stockinette in the body, sleeves smothered in cables. Smothered feels like the operative word with this sweater right now, because I had to try it on a million times while knitting it to check the fit, and it is way too hot around here right now for those shenanigans. Get that wool off my neck! I'll show it to you when it's dry. I will love this one in October, which will come soon enough, I'm in no rush. I knit those cabled sleeves four times in total to get them big enough for my upper arms--I think I chose the wrong size to begin with, but it worked out in the end. I assume. I am not putting it on today, ugh, it's too hot. Mazzy by Elizabeth Smith, that is tweedy and black and I can't wait to wear it. Because it isn't sweaty enough around here or anything. I'm just really motivated right now, and in full-on sweater knitting mode. This does seem to happen to me a lot. I've been asked, "Isn't summer the off-season?" Which does give me pause, but no. I knit like a fiend all the year long, and always something wooly. That's how I roll. this. I think that grinchy green will add just the right amount of pizzazz. What are you guys up to?
